wouldn't have relied on the libyan governor to protect our people or cia operatives. would have send the military immediately and not wonder whether he offended the libyan government. who gives a darn if you offend the libyan government if american lives are at stake, particularly if they demonstrated in the months before they could not protect that consulate. that's why it's important to know whether the president know about the prior attacks? because if he did know, then his inaction is totally inexcusable. >> uma: mr. mayor, it's a pleasure to have you on the show today. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you very much. >> uma: i know you've got a very busy weekend and hope to see you soon and i know you're going to be watching the results very closely come tuesday, thank you. >> thank you, uma, thank you very much. >> uma: well, everybody's been saying the unemployment rate has risen again. showing how listless the economy is. and the labor department showing two green arrows, while 171,000 jobs were created last month. the other green arrow seems to be the problem that t

this was an intelligence failure by the c.i.a. but the president is commander in chief and buck stops with him. the buck stopped with george bush after 9/11. if you are commander in chief you are responsible with what goes on with the military. having said that, i do take exception, they haven't said this but somehow barack obama knew this was going to happen and stood by and allowed it to happen. what may come may come. when you are accuse the president you are accusing him of treason. it would be hard to accuse of any president of specifically and purposely standing by and putting americans in harm's way. there a distinction to be made there. i do agree with the larger point. if we do have answers we should have them. >> that is not at all what the many response critics are saying. the intelligence failure was the explanation the administration has offered up. but it turns out the early intelligence was right. while the attack was taking place for those six hours, there were cables sent that suggest they knew this was al-qaeda related. it turns out it most certainly was. they got it right. one of rema

department, cia, everybody, was what exactly happened. it took two weeks for the intelligence consensus to settle down which is pretty quick as far as these things go. and so we now know what happened. there was clearly confusing stories. >> there seems to have been confusion in the intelligence communities. and the state department, i don't know. the state department says that stuff about the video didn't come from us. that was not our conclusion. they watched it unfold realtime and realtime apparently concluded this was an act of terror. there are still so 15-minute questions. >> that's what the president said the day after it happened. megyn: even though he used that term, he declined specifically repeatedly to confirm in the affirmative when he was asked was this terrorism. he kept saying we have to let the facts play out. you can't say by using the term "terrorism questions was saying it was an act of terrorism. you understand why people are confused, right? >> two weeks later at the u.n. he did not mention terrorism but he talked about the youtube video. administration officials t
